| What to Expect
You will get faster and better at assessing which kind of interactive tasks or projects are of interest to you.
You will also get better at imagining your time as a bounded thing, which in itself is a major success, and will make you choose better what projects you want to put in it. You will get more discerning at not letting things generally spillover, or take longer than they have to take unless you really are enjoying them a lot, and sometimes, out of allegiance to the other things you want to have in your life, not even then.
You will understand better how much time the various things you can encounter take, what are their consequences in terms of time costs, and basically what you can and cannot afford to spend out of your time budget on them. Estimating time costs is a habit. You might feel awfully inadequate at it to start with, but through practice, you will get to mastery.
Every once in a while, you will forget or not want to go through the effort of estimating the costs, and just say yes. This is still progress even if you are regretting it, because being in an uninteresting meeting for hours will make you are aware of how costly thoughtless “yes” is.
